The availability of both healthcare professional oriented and solely personal information is of great importance to women during their pregnancy. The data constituting this information is currently distributed between many parties which makes it very difficult for the pregnant woman to assess her situation. To address these issues we have pursued the idea of providing each woman with a digital artefact intended as an entry point for the provision of pregnancy support. Secondly the coordi-nation of information between several parties of the health sector suffers from redundancy that could be rectified by sim-ple technical aids. In this paper we describe the challenges found in relation to pregnancies and propose a solution to meet these challenges.
